"Grown men can learn from very little children for the hearts of the little children are pure. Therefore, the Great Spirit may show to them many things which older people miss."

Academic Tutoring Services
Is your child having difficulty in school? With homework? In general? Our office provides individual academic tutoring. Students who are referred for academic tutoring are assigned a tutor that will visit them at their school, up to 3 times a week. The tutors make contact with the referring teacher to ensure that the teacher's recommendations and concerns are addressed. Strategies that are based in Native American pedagogy may be utilized during tutoring sessions to promote academic success, unless parent requests otherwise. As a parent, you can request this service from our office. Please visit the Forms Page to complete a Student Referral Form and submit to our office.
Other Services Provided
Individual Mentoring - Mentoring strategies that are based in Native American pedagogy are used by the tutors.
Family Communication and Intervention - Staff from our office can make home visits and nurture positive dialogue to meet the needs of the student. Follow up visits are implemented to foster continuity.
Referral Services - Our staff can make referral to agencies that address food, clothing, health, housing, and legal issues.
Academic Events - Our office strives to recognize academic achievement by the student.
